Hospo franchisee's no jab jobs ad withdrawn

posted on 30th November 2021

1 December 2021 - A hospitality franchisee who invited unvaccinated workers to apply for bar and restaurant roles on a "No Jab Jobs" website has had the ad removed. Lone Star New Lynn posted the advertisement on the site four days ago with a note saying the business "will not be discriminating either whilst employing or serving our guests." The job ad appears to contravene the vaccine mandate for close contact workers in the hospitality industry.

Paul Steiner, operations manager for the Lone Star franchise, told the New Zealand Herald, "All franchisees are required by the terms of their franchise arrangements to comply with all relevant laws, legislation, and government requirements, including health requirements."

The mandatory vaccination requirements have generally been welcomed by franchisors, although there have been concerns about the challenges that enforcing the vaccine pass will present to franchisees.
